After two 7” singles, CEREKLOTH have released their debut album of melodic death metal on these eight heavy songs.
The band has the heaviness down with the bass just crushing it and singer JBP’s low, growling vocals that you can make out the lyrics to the songs, something a bit different in most death metal. This is not a fast paced album; for the most part they play slow, heavy and gritty on this album. The guitar work from the two guitarists is really tight and has a nice edge to it with some chunky leads, the bass is low and nice and heavy, and the drumming really is handled well with lots of precision and power. You get some dual vocals on here, one heavier than the other and both executed really well. The fast bits are mostly included in the songs themselves as opposed to just fast songs, and there are a lot of atmospheric touches on the album as well. “Halo Of Syringes” is heavy as hell and has some great playing on it as well as a ton of atmosphere and tension that almost strangles you.
A very good album from this up and coming death metal band from Denmark.
